I have both the Gamma AR and LT. The LT is much lighter, thiner, as comfortable and they both looks good. I agree with some reviewers that this jacket looks good and I use it in Fall, Spring but not for cold winter without good base layer. I have used it for over 3 weeks in fall and love it. I wear it everyday to work and fit well over a long sleeve office shirt. My only complain is that the arm does not not have any velcro to tighten and block cold wind. I don't think the elastic band will last very long; we will wait and see. 4 stars for comfort and good locking jacket especially in Black but not entirely practical for cold winter . The heron color is still in my wish list for Christmas.
Love this jacket. The fit is perfect. I am almost 5'11", 170lbs. and the medium is perfect. The athletic cut keeps it from being too wide in the abdominal area and the tapered rear keeps the jacket from riding up in the back. Love the feel and stretch of the material as well. If you're looking for something to provide a ton of warmth, this probably isn't the jacket. That said, I don't believe that's the purpose of this jacket anyway. If you're wanting a very versatile piece that can perform in a ton of activities, this is it. I plan to use it skiing a bunch this year with a substantial base layer and long-sleeve underneath to help with additional warmth.
I bought this specifically for travel and knocking around town about a year ago. I use it year around for air travel. I am always hot stepping to my next flight and this jacket is perfect to throw in the side pocket of my travel bag. Pull out and throw on waiting for shuttle or taxi. True it does not provide a lot of warmth but the quality and fit are excellent. I am 6' 190# and a large is perfect fit for me. I had a MH Synchros II jacket I left on a plane which was warmer, but this jacket packs lighter and fits better. Love it. gonna get the Gamma MX for colder climes.
Good fit had to get the large to fit my shoulders wish some of these soft shell jackets had pit zips for a more active use.
This jacket is typical Arcteryx, super high quality, fits tall and thin bodies, really well thought out and looks great. Highly recommend.
Love Arcteryx but just can't recommend this jacket. For me its more about the fashion than the function. Main complaint - its cold as hell. Maybe it works well if you are sweating up a storm on a cold day but the second you stop you feel the chill. This thing adds almost zero warmth to a base layer as the wind goes right through it. It's also cold to the touch. Its not something I'd want to carry in the mountains. Much better to take a hardshell which will cut the wind and let your mid layers trap heat. I guess I am not really a softshell person. I still can't figure out what they are for. Yes they breath when you are working hard but the second you strop you freeze. All that said it looks wicked and is a great city jacket in warmer weather.
I ordered it in a small because of another review. Sleeves were perfect length but the torso was pretty tight, I'm 5'5" 160lbs. Since I'm returning it I decided to get another one instead that will be more warm (Atom SV). This jacket is very nice and I did like it, just wasn't right for me.
